The appearance of the car is developed by the joint efforts of the teams of Korean and American design centers Kia. Sedan received a radiator grille, the design of which consists of 176 cells, as well as unusual optics: both in the headlights and lanterns of the K9 / K900 / Quoris there are twin LED sections.
